Here's some more info from the Bouroullecs:


A few years ago, Axor, the designer brand of Hansgrohe, asked us to work on a collection for the bathroom.

Our project was to create solutions for a large variety of situations, spaces and habitats.

The result is a comprehensive collection of 85 items including different sorts of basins, mixers and solutions for the bathtub and the shower areas that can be arranged freely according to one’s needs.

    That’s brilliant again!

  • Anna

    Nice idea.
    However: quite unrealistic.
    - Where is the trap? It has been photoshoped!
    - Is it for hotels only, as the amount of products placed is very small. Just think of a couple or a family. Or who is the target?
    - Fill the sink and splash your face, quick wash of a shirt in the sink… all seams impossible with this one.
    - The bathtub is wasting a lot of space, due to using the area for storage instead of stretching your legs, while in the bath…
    The shown bathroom is as big a somebody’s livingroom.
    Would prefer working concepts for the standard sized little bathroom.

    Simply beautiful. Minimalist design yet so elegant

    The ‘mise en scene’ seems stronger than the actual design of the products & fixtures, good sublimation of their project as one would expect from the French duo.

    Design language reminscent of their Riziere table for Kreo, “Rice fields” logical progression concerning irrigation.

    The tap design very similar to that of a toilet flush, mixed messages for the user ?

    Very handsome. But I am not understanding the flexible shower hose and the minuscule basin. Wouldn’t water splash all over the floor. And I don’t understand the shallow basins. Looks good but not much use.

    Next generation of bath fittings, just great!

    I love the multi-tiered sinks — a great way to break up the plane of the bathroom counter and keep toiletries neatly arranged. I rarely do anything other than shave and brush my teeth at the sink, so a nice shallow basin works for me. These would look great in my bathroom!

    @ Anna – For the size of sink it fits alot of toiletries; I imagine they were given a brief to design a range aimed at smaller homes.
    Many architects are predicting that baths will become less and less popular- most new baths are smaller and hence more eco friendly with water use.
    Traps- you can get ‘minimalist’ traps which are only about 15cm in height

  • Marcus Des

    Seems very restricted in its possibilities. Doesn’t communicate “wellness” as I would expect.

  • Davide

    Anna & Xit you got it
    beautiful, but not for everybody…

  • James Peters

    I normally admire the work of R & E, but here it seems that the brief has destroyed all the good ideas – has this been designed for caravans ? – It is meager and tight – not generous but over-complex and unrealistic.

    – Where is the magic ?

    Simple, comfortable and very aesthetic. Minimalist design yet so elegant. Great pictures also!
